Some people think that meditation is really difficult, or that you need to be a full time monk to be able to meditate properly. While the concentration required is great, meditation is something that can help you achieve inner peace. Whether you are learning meditation with an online course or in a local group, pick a teacher you match well with.
Meditation is much more fun in a group and you'll find that others are probably on a similar learning curve as you are.

It doesn't matter if you are taking longer to learn meditation that someone else (like I am). Meditation helps me maintain peace within, which allows me to bring peace into all situations. I needed a teacher that understood that it's nearly impossible for me to sit still - which is why I chose walking meditation.
Depending on the group's aim, you may also learn about different meditation techniques as the group progresses.
